In the late 80s the fresh, fun sound of The Traveling Wilburys came bursting out of our radios. Their instant, world-wide success was no fluke and no surprise, as this mysterious band of ‘unknowns’ was in fact a supergroup formed by some of the world’s most-beloved musicians. Instigated by George Harrison and Jeff Lynne and joined by Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and Roy Orbison, The Traveling Wilburys left their deep mark on pop music history.
Though The Wilburys never played live, their debut album won the 1990 Grammy for Best Rock Performance. Now, THE WILBURY LEGENDS show is coming to the MEMO and traces the careers of these five superstars who united almost by accident to remind the world of the roots of rock ’n’ roll. The show features Wilburys’ songs and many hits by its illustrious individual members.
